Ertico – ITS Europe has announced it is to hold the first-ever Central Eastern European Congress next year.
Hosted by the city of Kazan, in south-west Russia, the event will focus on cooperation with Russia, the Commonwealth of Independent States (which comprises a number of countries formed after the break-up of the Soviet Union) and Central Eastern countries, says Ertico.
It will take place in Kazan, Tatarstan on 21-24 September 2020 and there is a preview of the event in the city next month, on 3-4 October. The main theme of the Congress is: ‘Sharing Innovation – Creating a Connected Future’.
Ertico says it will attract 150 exhibitors and 1,500 mobility experts from Europe, Asia, Central Eastern Europe and Russia for a programme of sessions and an exhibition, and promises technical visits and “plenty of networking opportunities”.
In a statement, the organisation adds: “The Russian Federation has achieved a great deal in terms of safety and congestion reduction by introducing new technologies such as sensors, road safety cameras and modernising existing ones. Connected cars and V2X technologies are fundamental in current plans to improve road safety and there is an increasing interest in connectivity and automation.”
